Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JD1429 Good Experience Would Recommend
My experience at this location was good. The staff was accommodating and took care of my request in an expedient manner. The hotel is clean as well as the rooms. I would stay at this hotel again. I was hesitant at first due to some of the reviews, however after my stay I would question some of those reviews. Although the staff appear friendly they need to smile more to make guest feel welcomed. They need to loosen up some.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by satifiedcharles Wonderful service and friendly staff
I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in McAllen for 4 days last week.
I usually hate traveling on business, but this was wonderful.
The staff were all very friendly. The rooms were spacious and comfortable.
I was a bit doubtful when I heard about 'free' breakfast. I imagined a danish or something small, but it was a wonderful meal, and the menu changed from day to day.
I can't wait for my next stay.

Stayed here for a cheer competition. I have never seen a more beautiful swimming pool. The indoor/outdoor pool was amazing. My children enjoyed it and enjoyed the 11pm closing time too. Looking forward to our next visit. Highly recommend it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bendito31 My stay
I was promised a suite during my next visit which did not happen. I was afraid I wasn't even going to get a room because service rep stated that they double booked me. Beds are very hard a you can feel the springs. I asked to see if they had something to help with the comfort and told me that they would bring a pillow top to my room. Never showed up but I did get a call at 11pm which is very late. l saw manager the next morning and asked if they took care of everything and explained to her what happened and promised me a suite my next visit again. Don't make promises you can't keep.

We live in Cd. Victoria Mexico and I do business in the McAllen area and on occasions I do Transmission Seminars in Latin America. We stay at this location many times a year. So my family takes advantage and stays in your beautiful Hotel while I am out so they can go shopping etc. etc.. The Staff is like family and I feel very sure that if anything comes up that they will take care of it like they have demonstrated time and time again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Family Friendly
Flew down from Illinois on a family emergency.
The kids got to enjoy the pool in the evenig...which could have been a little warmer (heated outdoor/indoor pool), but the kids didnt mind (9&10).
plenty of restaurants around and coveniently located to the hospital.
Hotel does have a shuttle service and are very accomodating.
Breakfast selection was average...pancake maker; hot choices; cereal; fruit; etc.
near the plaza mall.
I would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kcfireman rrecent stay in McAllen
The front office staff at check in was excellent. I think her name was Brenda and the other young man working with her greeted us like no other place.
The only negative was the parking late at night. With Buffalo Wild Wings next door their customers too many of the spaces.

This has to be the worst experience at a Holiday Inn Express. On entering my room, I removed my shoes to relax and upon stepping toward the desk area I found myself standing on a soaked carpet. Approximately 1/3 of the floor was wet. I reported the issue to the front desk. The maintenance person fixed the problem by placing two towels in front of the air conditioner. Did not even cover 1/10 of the wet area. I then noticed the room did not have a refridgerator. Again I called the front desk to request a refridgerator to store my medicines. Needless to say, I never got the refridgerator nor an explanation. On the second to my last night at the hotel, I called the front desk and asked for a 4:55am wake-up. I also set my alarm clock for 5:00am. I awoke at about 4:50am. The 4:55am wake-up call requested never occurred. Lucky for me I awoke earlier and the alarm clock did ring at 5:00am. I have never experienced such neglect from the staff of any hotel. My job requires I stay in hotels approximately 45 weeks per year.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Henfield Older hotel Shows its age
This property has both a newer tower (with suites) and the older main part of the hotel. Unfortunately, they did not have a room available for me in the new tower, even though I am a Platinum member. Rooms in the main part of the hotel really show their age, and you are not guaranteed a Refridgerator or a microwave. For the money, there are many newer hotels in the area. Another issue is the lack of parking, as you end up having to park out by the sports bar near the street. Overall, I would stay there again if I could guarantee the newer section, otherwise I would pass.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dlsaustin Nice value, clean and courteous
This is a nice hotel with attentive staff. I didn't eat in the restaurant. I enjoyed my stay and was able to relax after a day at the office.
The only real issue that I had was that the bed was more firm than I am used to (at home, I have a high-end memory foam mattress).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by neatness Great staff, cleaniness
I recently stayed in McAllen August 25th - 28th. The staff at check-in were very friendly and helped me locate a good restaurant near by. The rooms were clean and comfortable including the bathroom area. There were numerous choices for the breakfast offfered in the am.
I have stayed in this facility each time I have business i McAllen. I highly recommend this location for business or pleasure. I will certainly stay there again upon my next visit.

I stay at this property about 3 days a month and they always treat me well and put me in a great room.
Their customer service is great and this is the main reason why I choose this property over others.
I recommend this property.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Adelpago Excellent but...
I love this hotel and my husband too because it has the pool inside, the shopping mall is in front of the hotel, a good restaurant its behind the hotel, a good buffet restaurant too, but now we hear the guests who where up of us (in the next floor) and in the next room, and the kids running and screaming outside of the rooms.
We love this hotel but now was too noisy :( and we hope the next time will be better! :)
The comfort is well too, the bed probably could be better :)

Sometimes things don't go as planned. I was given an upgrade prior to my arrival, but unfortunately the AC went out before my arrival. I was placed into another comfortable room, but what set this apart was the great customer service I was given.
Good customer service will bring me back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dmil00 My go to when in the valley
This hotel is in a prime location, close to the airport, across the street from one of the best steak houses in the area (Santa Fe Steakhouse ask for Josh). I am in the Valley area every three weeks for business and I've stayed all over the region. This is the best Holiday Inn Express I have found. The only drawback is if you get upgraded to a suite (which I do every time), the suites are located in an adjacent building away from where the happy hour, pool, work out facility, and breakfast is served.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CarlosdeMTY NICE PLACE TO STAY FOR SHOPPING
EVERYTHING WAS OK, ..ALMOST....
STAFF AT REGISTRATION, HELP FOR A SUDDEN 1 EXTRA NIGHT AND PRICE WITH THE REWARDS CLUB WAS EXCELENT
SUITE FOR 4 WAS NICE, QUIET AND NEAR OF THE MALL EN OTHER NICE PLACES IN MCALLEN.
THE ONLY NEGATIVE ISSUE: THERE WAS NO CLEANING SERVICE AT THE ROOM IN THE DAY AND WHEN WE COME BACK, BY NOON THE CLEANING STAFF PRETEND TO CLEAN IT AND WE PREFERED NOT TO DO IT AT THAT TIME, SO JUST CHANGE TOWELS. THEY SAY THE "ERROR" WAS BECAUSE THEY THINK WE HAD LEAVE THE ROOM IN THE MORNING, SO, I THINK THEY NEED MORE COORDINATION WITH THE REGISTRATION STAFF.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Different than most
This place runs differently from most Holiday Inn Expresses I've stayed at. And, I've stayed at quite a few. First off, I was informed that I pre-paid my room when I checked in. I denied that and explained that I made a reservation on the internet like I had done countless times before. Nope, insistence that I pre-paid. Then was told that instead of cancelling a day off my reservation when I called to change it, they just moved my reservation back a day. So, I had still pre-paid for 4 days, even though I was only going to be there 3 days. The manager did correct the extra day; she said anyway. When it came time for check out, I was told that because I pre-paid, that I wouldn't get a receipt. I didn't get a receipt from anyone else, so I have no receipt. Was told the manager would call. A week later, still no call. Not impressed. Also, was assigned a Smoking room because that's what my profile said. Went and checked my profile (online) and sure enough, it had been changed to Smoking. Not sure how that would have happened. I've never smoked. Every room I've had before this stay was a non-smoking room. Just weird experiences with this place all-around.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mariokim Little too crowded.
Hotel is a little to crowded. Lots of shopers and small parking spaces.. at a fair distance.
Staff seems a little overwelmed and stressed.
Lots of kids walking around and using the business center for video downloading and listeing to music; pretty uncomfortable.
Also, for the same reason, a lot of people walking aorund late at nght on hallways.
